Article publication date: 1 June 1931
THE Municipal Aerodrome movement in England is beginning to take shape, and there is no doubt progress in this development is becoming increasingly rapid. The Civil Aviation Department now issue a monthly “Progress Report,” the latest issue of which, dated March 31, shows that 170 towns are taking an interest in the desirability of providing facilities for aeroplanes. Of these, eight—Blackpool, Bristol, Hull, Ipswich, Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham and Plymouth—already possess municipal aerodromes licensed by the Air Ministry. Six further towns—Carlisle, Leicester, Portsmouth, Stoke‐on‐Trent, Sheffield and Southampton—have bought sites, and an additional 18 are at present in negotiation for the purchase of sites. Besides these, 12 towns have reserved sites for aerodromes in their town‐planning development schemes, while another 67 have already had possibly suitable sites inspected, 3 more awaiting a visit for this purpose.
